AAP funding issue: Major conspiracy being hatched against us, says Arvind Kejriwal

Delhi: Reacting to the allegations made by a breakaway volunteer group of AAP, claiming massive scam in the funding of the party, Arvind Kejriwal said on Monday that a major conspiracy is being hatched against him.

The AAP leader posted on the micro-blogging site Twitter: “BJP has already lost elections. A major conspiracy is being hatched against me and AAP. This is a test of the people of Delhi. I am sure they will support truth.”

A breakaway AAP Volunteer Action Manch (AVAM) today accused the Kejriwal-led party of receiving Rs 2 crore last year through four "dubious" companies.
The group claimed that the money was donated to AAP on the midnight of April 15 last year.

Karan Singh and Gopal Goel of AVAM alleged that four donations worth Rs 50 lakh each were remitted to the account of AAP from four different "dubious companies".

Later AAP's official Twitter handle said that it was the only political party in India whose entire donations were in public domain and fully transparent.

It also said that the BJP had unleashed a smear campaign against the AAP just five days before Delhi elections and that the saffron party was rattled since they were not gaining support from the electorate of Delhi.

In another tweet it said, "AAP demands an SIT probe monitored by Supreme Court into funding of all political parties, particularly BJP, Congress and the AAP," adding, "The probe must cover complete donations of all the three parties including the ten and thousands of crores that the BJP and Congress have received."

"AAP is confident that it will come out clean and the will emerge victorious," they said.
